Irish bagpipe solo, Columbia 33085-F. O'Nolan billed himself as the "Wicklow Piper," but his piping seems to have little in common with famous Leinster pipers such as the Doran brothers or Leo Rowsome; his charming punchy style is much more reminescent of others who recorded in America such as Tom Ennis. O'Nolan recorded a few piping solos in 1925-26 but his subsequent recorded output over the next five years were vocal discs, backed by a piano, sometimes with clarinet and violin... favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 1 reviews ) Topics: Irish, Celtic, Bagpipe, Uilleann, Folk, Oldtime, 78rpm

Hot ragtime mandolin by Dr. Clarence Penney, "Toots - One-Step" was recorded on August 31, 1914. The piano accompaniment is by Felix Arndt, who also composed "Toots". Although banjo is the more usual instrument in ragtime recordings, the mandolin was also used, and this is a good example of the genre.

Biography in Sound was an hour-long documentary radio program that was produced and broadcast in the 1950s. It's one of the best examples of radio excellence - the production is exemplary and I find every episode to be compelling. It's one of my favorites; I don't understand why it isn't more well known! Each episode featured multiple guests, who often were peers or friends of the person who was the featured subject. For example, the show on Hemingway features Mickey Spillane, Gary Cooper, Al... favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 5 reviews ) Topics: Biography in Sound, Churchill, Winston, Sir, 1874-1965, Old Time Radio, Winston Churchill, OTR,...
